Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Apple Let a Hilariously Fake “Halo 4” into the App Store

Gizmodo

Did you guys hear about the Halo 4 port on iPhone and iPad? Apparently Microsoft and 343 Industries have the whole thing running on both the iPhone and iPad and it's just five bucks and the only difference is it's just a chess game and not even a little related to Halo. Oh.

So uh, here's what's going on: There's a $5 app in the App Store called Halo 4. It's a chess game. But its description is basically the full rundown of Halo 4, and its attendant screenshots are all of Halo 4, even the iPhone versions which are the total wrong aspect ratio. And then there are the 206 reviews (4.5-star average), which are quite positive, aside from a few people who are apparently not robots:

Aside from this "most have game", the only other app available from this developer is something called "Live Wallpapers - Living Animated Lock & Home Screen". Its production value seems a little short of Halo:

So everything aside, this is kind of a hilarious oversight from Apple, which in hindsight might have just been feeling left out of the distributer screwup parade this week. [iTunes via MacMixing via Cult of Mac]

It seems you can change the app name, screenshots and description after being approved. I think it's a huge hole for scammers, and Apple should close it.

yeah seriously there is so much shit on the app stores and when you see something like that you get the feeling there is only one person working for apple/google who are there to check hundret thousands of apps.


It's amazing how they managed to compress the whole game into only 6.6 megabytes.
